Miranda Lambert Loved by the Country Music Association (she’s won more female vocalist of the year than any other artist), it’s no surprise that her latest album, “Palomino,” is the front-runner to win 2022 album of the year. CMA Awards. But he is not invincible. We may be underestimating Luke Combs for “growing up.”
Lambert’s “Palomino” has leading odds of 11/2 based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. He’s backed by 22 of our top 24 users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s CMAs, and 21 of our All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the past two years’ prediction results.
Lambert has won Album of the Year twice at the CMAs: in 2010 for “Revolution” and in 2014 for “Platinum.” But he’s been nominated a total of six times, so he’s lost more than he’s won. In 2012 he lost to “For the Record”. Eric ChurchIts “chief.” In 2017 he lost to “The Weight of These Wings”. Chris Stapletonof “From a Room: Volume 1.” And his “wildcard” in 2020 lost to the aforementioned Luke Combs “what you see is what you get.”
Now Lambert hopes to win their rematch. On paper, the two artists are evenly matched—terribly so. Both are nominated for exactly three awards. She is up for Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year He is up for Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year in his own gender category.
However, Combs is the defending champ for Entertainer of the Year, an award Lambert has never won despite a long career (the CMAs often overshadowed women in that race), which could be a sign that Combs has more support from the association. .
